Overlord Initiative roll = flag Vs Artillery in Bunkers Thu, 17 November 2011 17:59
A Fc rolls his initiative roll, gets a flag, but the only remaining units are artillery units in bunkers.

Do they ignore the Flag (bunkers rules) or do they take a hit (FAQ ruling stating that Japanese may not ignore the flag from an initiative roll) ?

Confused

Sounds like they take the hit, and it's a costly mistake! Razz

If all units are in sandbags, one would be forced to retreat, so I agree with Ras that a flag would cost the artillery 1 figure.

But if my only unit were an artillery, I wouldn't be rolling on initiative -- except in desperate circumstances with the game on the line. Only 1 face orders the unit, while 2 faces damage it.

They where desperate circumstances Very Happy

Marines and Japanese tied at 14 medals, with just one needed to win!
